Imagine you had a frying pan, a rasher of bacon and a burning desire to flip the bacon onto something. You’d probably start with a small target like a burger, or maybe some pancakes.

But before long you’d be looking for bigger and weirder things to fling your food at – things such as a handsome cowboy or the Empire State Building or Kevin Bacon. That’s what Bacon – The Game delivers. We haven’t laughed so much at a game in ages.

It’s the latest creation of developer Philipp Stollenmayer, whose portfolio includes the endearingly daft Pancake: The Game and Verticow. Bacon – The Game is simple, and yet incredibly tricky: all you need to do is tap the screen at the right moment to flip your frying pan and send your bacon skywards.

The skill is in doing it at exactly the right time, something that’s not too hard when you’re chucking it at a cheeseburger but really difficult when you’re flinging food at a tiny hole in a brick wall.

But what we like best is the atmosphere: there’s a real sense of twinkly-eyed mischief here. It’s guaranteed to make you smile.
